FortiAnalyzer Overview

The digital attack surface is expanding at a rapid rate, making it increasingly difficult to protect against advanced threats. According to a recent Ponemon study, nearly 80% of organizations are introducing digital innovation faster than their ability to secure it against cyberattacks. In addition, the challenges of complex and fragmented infrastructures continue to enable a rise in cyber events and data breaches. Assorted point security products in use at some enterprises typically operate in silos, obscuring network and security operations teams from having clear and consistent insight into what is happening across the organization.

An integrated security architecture with analytics and automation capabilities can address and dramatically improve visibility and automation. As part of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiAnalyzer provides security fabric analytics and automation to provide better detection and response against cyber risks.
